i’ve learned a lot about transparency in the last month & was thinkin it might be fun to demonstr8 how a baby song grows up into a full blown rip’r, which takes a lot of moving parts. SOOO peep the link in bio 2 hear what PPL PLZR sounded like in demo form! i definitely wobbled my way thru a first pass, but there’s a lot of heart floating around in there. i even ended up lifting the outro verse for the final recording bc it felt far more natural than any of the times i tried to replicate it. i would be extremely happy to nerd out with y’all about how the rest of the track formed around my initial sketch. here’s some demo art as well, bc it was fun to watch the visuals grow up too ::) we are still sending all proceeds to @trevorproject so if ya can, throw some change their way ❤️ ALSO, bc y’all asked so nicely, the final version of ppl plzr will be available to stream on 11/12 so smash that pre-save link asap 😘 ALSO ALSO i am playing a house show in Seattle 2nite so plz DM for details!
